Argyris and Schon define organizational learning as �an organization�s acquisition of understandings, know-how, techniques, and practices of any kind by whatever means� (p. xxi). The authors make a good case for the limitations, and in many cases, dysfunctional learning that occurs in organizations.

Best quotes; �the performance of an observable action new to an organization is the most decisive test of whether a particular instance of organizational learning has occurred�
